Actress Bonnie Wright is featured this week in Entertainment Weekly as a “Movie Must Bewitching Love Interest.” As seen via this link, the magazine says:

AGE 18

WHY HER Few Harry Potter fans imagined that Ginny
Weasley would blossom into the love of the boy wizard’s life. Ditto
Wright, the actress who has played Ginny since she was 9. Now Wright
and her character move into the spotlight with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, opening July 15.

There is also video of Bonnie noting her summer musts, where she notes she has Leonard Cohen, Truffaut and also ”I’m reading Milton’s Paradise Lost,” she says. ”Creation, Adam and Eve, fall of man ” great stuff.”

Avatar ImageCandyCane2304 says: This is nice. You usually don't see Bonnie realted thing's.Avatar Imagekamidee says: Bonnie looks great in that article XDAvatar Imagepotter_mom_in_GA says: She really seems to have a great head on her shoulders. It's got to be overwhelming, thinking you've been hired to be a minor character and then you get some major attention.Avatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: im jealous.. :D she gets to play DANIEL'S partner.. :(( hahaAvatar ImageLuce_depp says: bonnie is cool. I always thought she fit ginny really really well...and i still do :)Avatar ImageChreechree says: What do they mean few fans saw Ginny as Harry's future love interest? I think there are plenty in the fandom that would not agree with that assessment. For me, it was clear from the first time I read Chamber of Secrets that JKR was setting these two up. If nothing else, Harry's rescuing Ginny from the Chamber followed the classic Fairy Tale: The brave prince/ knight rescues the fair princess/ maiden from the tower/ dungeon where she's being guarded by an evil dragon/ serpent (basilisk), and they live happily ever after. With that much foreshadowing, I would've been surprised if he hadn't ended up with Ginny. Kudos to Bonnie! I'm glad to see her getting some well-deserved press. The EW picture is very nice. Avatar Imagekingdom says: i thought Harry's love interest would be Hermione, but i'm actually happy too that it was GinnyAvatar ImageRhiannon7 says: Bonnie has become a beautiful young lady. And smart too. Milton, really? Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: Beautiful photo -Avatar ImageDanielBonnie28 says: she looks great!!Avatar Imagetarotx says: I'm pretty sure their talking about movie Ginny because I knew Book Harry and Ginny would become a couple from the SS train scene when Harry sees her chasing the train until nearly out of sight. Avatar Imagetarotx says: I'm pretty sure they are talking about movie Ginny because many fans or at least I knew Book Harry&Ginny would become a couple since the PS/SS train scene when Harry sees Ginny chasing the train until nearly out of sight. Avatar ImageFereverto says: I agree that it's mostly the movie people that didn't see Harry/Ginny coming. His best friends sister who has always been crazy about him. The first Weasly girl in several generations. I always thought she was meant for Harry. I love seeing articles about Bonnie. That is a lovely picture of her. Very "Ginny".Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Good for Ginny and Bonnie..YAY! :)Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: I agree about the "FEW" part. Most book readers knew they were going to be a couple from the first. That is one of the reasons HBP is my favorite book. Movie only people do miss out on so much.Avatar Imagezoltan42 says: Cohen, Truffaut, and Milton: very interesting choices.Avatar Imagepotterrock says: wiwiwiiw....greatt information....bonnie is so prettyy Avatar Imagetinagin says: Agree with chreechree and CoolG. Where are they getting the "few" from. I think it was pretty clear where Jo was taking that relationship. Go Bonnie, Go Ginny!!!Avatar Imagebudb says: And I'm with Cool G and the others...who didn't figure out that Harry and Ginny would be an item? It was certainly clear from the CoS novel, and even pretty clear in the film. And (basic Freud folks!), surely it occurred to others that Lily Potter's hair was also long and red? Again I am impressed by the poise of these young actors...Bonnie Wright seems to be following in Emma Watson's path! And we can wonder how many students in the US are dealing with Leonard Cohen, Truffaut and Milton this summer? Now, on a sillier note, I will admit with a sigh that I regret being "considerably" too old to even hang a poster of Ms. Wright on the wall ;-) Not only have I a weakness for red-heads, she has a fantastic Lauren Bacall voice...who can ignore that memorable line "I'm not wearing that, it's ghastly"? ;-)Avatar ImageRose_Lily says: I had the same reaction many others did upon reading this article. I hoped from the very first book when Ginny is mentioned on Platform 9 3/4 that she and Harry were going to end up together. Avatar Imagebudb says: Just struck me that the mere fact I referred to Lauren Bacall is a dead give away to how much considerably older i am! Of course, I also had a crush on Carol Burnette when I was a kid....Avatar ImageGiant Fairy says: this article is, with the exception of the beautiful pic, rather boring. Too bad too many press people don t put efforts in asking interesting questions. And I had my bet on Ginny/Harry from SS Platform, tooAvatar Imagebadger666 says: Cool.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: She sure has grown up a LOT!Avatar Imagesgt_majorette says: Said it before and I'll say it again: Bonnie Wright is way prettier on her own than she is as Ginny Weasley. They really ought to let her style her own look for the films.Avatar ImageDolemite says: I think we all saw this coming.Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: she looks good. yayyy for Bonnie :DAvatar Imagesunlitdays says: im sosososoooooooso glad that theres finally starting to be stuff on bonnie wright. i mean dont the media ppl realize that ginny eventually marries the star character of these books? i never understand why its taken them so long to get going. ah well. im sorry im just such a diehard h/g shipper i cant help myself :PAvatar ImageBroomsnitch says: Ugh of all the material to read....Paradise Lost?! So tedious, I don't know why she would put herself through it. Avatar Imagesaffran says: She is really beautiful!Love that hair of hers!Avatar ImageRosalie says: Awww, I love Bonnie! Yay for her making EW magazine! She sounds really intelligent.Avatar Imagemouse68 says: Yes, making the EW must list is quite a big deal. It's nice to see Bonnie getting some attention. I love her taste in books, film and music too.Avatar ImageBonnie Radcliffe says: He he he!! I'm one of those few fans they mention who knew all along she would be Harry's love interest ^^ Very interesting readings =) Good taste, Bonnie!! ;-)Avatar Imagebudgie says: Good article, and good for Bonnie!Avatar ImageTasyaWeasley says: Go Bonnie :)Avatar Imagekingdom says: she looks great!Avatar Imagejonamos says: I have to agree with Chereecheree on this one. pretty much every one apart from the H/H shippers saw this coming but hey. And is it just me or does it look like they called her Ditto Wright instead of bonnie in the middle of the article!?!Avatar ImageDanielBonnie28 says: she looks great!!Avatar Imagebookishgal says: Nice to see something about Bonnie.Avatar Imagetarotx says: I'm pretty sure they are talking about movie Ginny because many fans or at least I knew Book Harry&Ginny would become a couple since the PS/SS train scene when Harry sees Ginny chasing the train until nearly out of sight. Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: I agree about the "FEW" part. Most book readers knew they were going to be a couple from the first. That is one of the reasons HBP is my favorite book. Movie only people do miss out on so much.Avatar ImageLucia Meadows says: I'm glad the press is throwing Bonnie some love. As long as she isn't shown only as the love interest of Harry (like Katie was for OotP), I'll be happy.Avatar Imageravonja says: She's very pretty on that article picture :)Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I'M SO HAPPY 2 SEE BONNIE N THE SPOTLIGHT. I can't wait 2 read the article!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I just have to say, in response to this article, that Ms. Wright has a fantastic taste in literature and I do hope that Paradise Lost inspires and provokes her as much as it as many other readers.Avatar Imagelilyjames says: before i had read the books and just watched the movies i always thought it would be harry and hermione but after i read the books my perspective changed and then i realised it should be harry and ginny and personally if it hadnt turned out that way i might have been very very upset i love the way things ended :)Avatar Imagealegria35 says: Bonnie grown into a beautiful young lady. She's really a looker in this pic.Avatar Imagesaffran says: She is really beautiful!Love that hair of hers!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: i luv her hair!!Avatar Imagecallicott3 says: I LOVE the longer hair!Avatar Imagegreyy says: Love her! (:Avatar Imageis.this.real says: Bonnie is such a beautiful girl, yet Ginny has been portrayed frumpier in the movies. Like a girl finding herself. Cannot wait to see Ginny in the epilogue! She will be truely beautiful!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: cool!!Avatar ImageWickedLoz says: "Few"??! Come on, even Ron saw Harry/Ginny coming!!! (He pretty much gives Harry permission to date her in OotP!) Avatar ImageLeeann says: nice.
